Maundy Thursday 2015

The Lord was in the temple, but on one good day Jesus Christ tore the temple curtain in two, from top to bottom.  (Matthew 27:51).  Was it so we could go in to him?  Or was he coming out to us?

He has come out to us in the Lord’s Supper.  And where he is, is a new temple.

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

— Matthew 26:26-28, ESV.

Our bodies are the new temple of God.  He puts his very real presence into us.

May the Lord bless your Maundy Thursday and Triduum.
